Directions to Xiao Man Tea House
'Xiao Man' translated literally means 'Little Slow' in Chinese. This serene tea house is a great space of natural textures, celebrating the ideals of slow living. In this space, visitors gather to relish the slow pace and engage with the traditional rituals of tea drinking.
A tea master can lead the ritualistic preparation if requested. Otherwise, guests are encouraged to select one of the many Taiwanese teas available and enjoy their own teatime undertaking in peace.
Form follows function in the physicality of the space. Bucolic mud walls, worn wooden picture frames and antiquated ornaments are bathed in the dim warm light where visitors sit along the wooden chado (tea ceremony) tables. Along the walls are packages of fragrant teas, Japanese pottery and Japanese linen clothes.
The food served in Xiao Man further reflects the owners dedication to the quality of slow living and simplicity. Dishes are basic but nourishing and prepared with care. Fresh steamed vegetables, brown rice risotto, fresh seafood and hearty doses of spices and fresh herbs - with the option of aboriginal millet wine.
